>> as the snow continue to fail in massachusetts. it is bringing back tough memories of the folks who remember 78. that dumped two feet of snow in boston. many simply abandoned the cars on the roadways and people coped with horrendous conditions . thritch years later, how are they sizing up this storm?
it is not over yet. the totals are not comit plete. but out in western massachusetts they have over 30 inches reported. here in boston two feet of snow . depending on where the measurements are taken. the governor put an executive order in place. and someone who works in a hospital or firefighter and needs to be at work for the public safety you could stay at home . you could face time in jail . that is yet to be lifted. the t in boston still shut down.
it is it handling things well . pime are obeying that order. thry are trying to get the secretary back together. they are still waiting for the travel ban to be lifted. we have 400 people . most of those folks are south of boston. they will work on that until the storm comes up. andev we have also to report flooding that has happened. there is concerns and we know that the waters come over the say wall .
the area that is it flooded before. they are a concern . safety of folks there . they have evacuate gotten out of the low-lying areas and one problem they could face is that water staying and freezing. right now it is it a wait and sigh. uma? >> i know how tough it is for the folks in the south shore. i used to live down that way. it is it a tough situation. molly, i am seeing people not heeding the warning and driving and not paying tanes to the orders. you have dare devils out there. >> we have seen that in the storm. in the height of the storm, we saw very little traffic and now the wind says are dying down and folks are out on the road. some people are not oh, baying the ban and others may have business . there is it a long list of
people if you need to be there thank you for that update. >> there is it a story generating a lot of controversy. the secret u.s. drone campaign and how the obama administration is it using it in a key weapon in the fight with suspected terrorist. there are no checks and balances and some say it gives the president a license to kill . others complain that the mere fact that the program is in place is it hypochrisy because the president and his allies are tough on the bush administration. joining us is a specialops wing man who is author of the book. naitance director. >> naitance. >> great to have you here today. it is it a busy news we wanted
to talk about what is at play here? what is your first thouts when you learned that the program was in place and could target americans? >> one it is it a great idea to take a terrorist out it doesn't matter how we take them out. whether we walk up close and shoot them or hit them from a drone at 20,000 feet. but the problem is it we are targiting americans. there can never be anyone in a position to have unlateral decision making on killing americans. guys like me and the men and women of the military and the intelligence agencies over the last 250 years did not do what they did to allow a king, any king in this case obama and his guys to arbitrarily decide who goes on a kill list. we need due process.
end of story. if you want to kill terrorist around the world. you have my blessing and i would stay most people who know me over the last 11 years on fox, know i am to haveto the right of the astilla the nun in protect being americans. but when it inform'res americans we need a different set of standarpeds. >> who will incorporate those standards? >> the constitution testimonies us how we are supposed to. and you and i discussed . there are judges like judge napolitano . who is involved in the process and whether to put them on the serious list. you don't want to be on the list that authorizes them to kill you obviously. and then, when we get back to the interrogation side.
i am all for water boarding is it water boarding that many of the criticings mistake that the japanese did to us and they fill you with water and distend you and kill you. get information and get it to an american and treat them better and bring them back and mirandize them and give them due. >> quickly in the few second says left. what about the notion of hypochris i? >> it is evident. if there were a of hypochrisy it is it. obama can do everything bush did to keep us safe it is okay. but george bush did it and he was lampooned. >> and the monster storm of 2013 dumped amounts of snow in
new england . take a look at what happened on the longhorns expressway in new york. hundreds of cars buried as the snow fell fast and steady . dozens of motorist stranded night . up next. how folks in long island are coping with the aftermath of a powerful storm. plus, we just can't resist. several of you reported pictures that we are getting . adorable wintery pet pictures. we'll share those after the break. i just want to give her everything.

vote on him in commit eye is problematic. >> you think political theater? >> i do think that is there. clearly a number of the republicans wanted to show they are pro israel and hagel was not and they wanted to force him to take back statements he had made. they haven't over the end of the cold war and moved on to a new era which president obama has. his idea basically of staying out of new wars in iran and basically closing down the war in iraq and getting out of stanford and not going into syria. i think that is it pretty much comports with what the american people want. they have had enough war and i am not the republican parity is there. but chuck hagel agrees with that point of view and they are more in tune with the country, frarvingly.
>> why is the gop not get? >> they believe deeply and i disagree with john mccain . i don't doubt his beliefs and those of lindsay graham. but they should have gotten the lesson of 200 . george bush lost both houses of congress and one . primary reasons two wars had turned rotten and we were about to lose the war in iraq if not for the surge. military powers such as we have got and more of it than anyone in the world has limited capabilities when you are trying to change reality in a part of the world where there is it a dramatic religious awakening taken in every country . these drone strikings. we are killing more terrorist than we are creating. when you kill 3000 or 4000 in pakistan and a lot of kid and women and elders and innocent
people, have you created more recruits for al qaeda, than you killed in terms of terrorist . if you are, are you in endless war? and is this you step back and reflict. >> many say we are in a endless war because it is a different kind much war. >> you know, james madison said war is it the republics . you start to lose your freedomings. we didn't have barriers . lafayet park was wide open and i use to drive over the east street and state department. it has barriers and everybody has a gun in their home . you get checked out before you on a plane. strip searched and what is it becoming of our count reap. thoughtful people step back and think are you finding the war in a way it is becoming a endless war. the drone issue is front and
center by the previous guest. barack obama has a right to kill americans abroad if it is it an imminent threat walking around in yemen and he is an american citizen. i don't think you can do that without having the congress in on that and the courts in on that. and put hard criteria down before you take the life of american citizens. >> it is it a provocative argument indeed. it is it always here to have you here. >> thank you, sir. i appreciate it take good care. >> massive spending cuts are just weeks away . up next. fair and balanced debate . i will be asking congressman on both sides of the aisle for their solutions. stay with us. . ♪
